I thought yesterday would never come… the last day of courses for at least two terms (otherwise known a 17 weeks). Now, I can finally have a little bit of free time – for the next month and a half (assuming I don’t sleep it away).
I have big goals before the little one arrives in August – I am going to attempt to finish the draft of Reverie. I am currently at about 30,000 words with is just a little under halfway the half way point. The major points in the story have been outlined, the only problem is figuring out how to get from point A to point B.
Since it’s been such a long time, since I’ve spent any significant time working on my creative writing, I’m feeling a bit rusty at the craft. In order to jump start my writing again, I decided to join Camp NaNoWriMo. I know, you probably remember me saying I was not going to participate in NaNoWriMo any more because I don’t like that rushed feeling and I’m a bigger fan of quality over quantity. Which is true, but I need a little help and jumping into the deep end with a goal of 20,000 words for a month is exactly what I need. Luckily, my motivation and creativity has skyrocketed within the last 24 hours. So, I am actually looking forward to starting writing again on July 1st.
So, here’s to hoping I can finish out this draft before the little one makes his appearance in this world. I’m still hoping for a late year publication.
